Your scope should be "in the ball-park" out of the box. This ball park will of course be determined by the height of scope rings you put on your rifle. The taller the scope rings/bases the lower your initial shot... Go to a range or safe outdoor shooting area. Put a large target up at 100 yards, 16"x6" will usually do. Aim at the bulls eye, and click off a round. Use a spotting scope, binoc's or your scope to see where your shot has hit. If it is off the paper and no where to be seen, click off a shot one foot high, check paper, repeat one foot low, one left, one right until you find your shot on paper. Once you find your shot, you will need to adjust the windage (left to right) or elevation (up to down) by using the turrets on the scope. Part of the trick in sighting in your scope is to remember if your shot is high, then you need to crank the turrets in the "up" postion (if it shoots left, turn turrets to the left, and so on). This part is sort of counterintuitive, and may feel foreign. Once you get your scope on paper, continue to adjust until you are hitting consistently 1 inch above bulls at 100 yards. Shooters benches and rifle rests help in this process, but it can also be achieved without. I hope this helps. D

Dear Carl,

I have the same problem and have not been successful finding an actual manual. However, if you go to "abousainc.com" there is a link for general instructions. It is under "Redfield Scopes" and then scroll down to "How to use the AccuTrac." However, it does not give the starting point of the instructions and only gives the table for the different dials. I will try to explain what those 2 lines at the top of the reticle are for.

The average whitetail from the top of the shoulder to the bottom of the chest should fit exactly inbetween these 2 lines when the zoom is used correctly. If you notice, the yardage counter in the bottom left (4:00 position) it will tell the yardage of the deer when you zoom in or out and the torso fills these 2 lines. You may also notice it starts at 200yds. Thats because you need have your rifle zeroed in at 100 yds. So there's no point displaying less than 200 yds. This is where the different dials come in. For example: the deer is 300yds away. You zoom in or out until the torso of the deer is inbetween the 2 lines then look at the yardage in the 4:00 position. It should read approx 300yds. Then you dial up to the number 3 position on the elevation knob and aim as you would if the deer where at 100ds.

Look up which dial you need on the ABOUSA site on the AccuTrac tables I mentioned earlier. You might be lucky and find the dial you have is the right one for your caliber. If not, this company was once the offical repair facility for Redfield, Colorado. They also have the different dials for sale but are quite expensive...$10--$30 each.

Hope this helps,
Mark

Redfield was purchased by Leupold in 2008, and is only able to repair and service Redfield scopes made in 2010 or later. If it was made before 2010, then it isn't covered by warranty, but Leupold does suggest contacting Iron Sight, Inc, if you want to ask about repairs and associated costs. Here's what the Redfield/Leupold website says:

When Leupold & Stevens, Inc.® purchased Redfield in April 2008, it did not acquire the capability to repair Redfield products manufactured prior to this purchase. The repair tooling and parts were purchased years ago by other repair services. Leupold & Stevens, Inc. will service its manufactured Redfield product (manufactured from 2010 forward) in accordance with its published warranty.
At this time, should a non-Leupold & Stevens, Inc. Redfield product require service, we suggest contacting Iron Sight, Inc. (918) 445-2001. This contact is provided for information purposes only, as Iron Sight Inc. is not affiliated with Leupold & Stevens Inc. They should be contacted directly for all information regarding repair, service and associated charges.

well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

Hi. Go to this link for the details on how to sight in the rifle. http://www.chuckhawks.com/sight-in_rifle.htm

The Widefield 3-9x variable power scope had a front objective lens measuring 36x27mm. It was 12.38" long and weighed 15.0 ounces. The horizontal field of view at 100 yards was 42.5' at 3x and 10.9' at 9x. The optimum eye relief was 3.25-3.0". The 3-9x variable scope was the most popular all-around choice in the market place. It was suitable for big game rifles in calibers ranging from .243 Winchester to 8mm Remington Magnum, expressly including such all-around favorites as the .270 Winchester, 7mm Remington Magnum, .308 Winchester, .30-06 and .300 Winchester Magnum.

A typical torque setting for scope bases (on a steel reciever) is 30 in/lbs. The rings (steel) need 15-20 in/lbs.

For a aluminum receiver and/or rings, 15-20 in lbs is about max. I use 10 in/lbs with blue Locktite for aluminum receivers and rings.

in order to get basics you need to know how to run the optic, i suggest you download this and read it, and start practicing. or find the users manual on your scope to figure how to work your elevation, windage, and rectify paralax.

Yes thats about all there is to it, adjust in small steps and tap on the barrel of the scope with a screw driver handle (light taps) after each adjustment before firing the gun.

Looking for instructions on the use of an Acu-trac rifle scope by Redfield. There are lines above the crosshairs and a yardage graph on the bottom of the crosshairs.

Redfield Optics | 1,057 views | 4 helpful votes


Is it bent or is it a dent? If its a dent no biggy, it should work ok, may even put a good mount over the dent and tighten it to take it out. If bent it may still work good enough to hunt with and you will not fear it getting bent again. You will loose a bit of Viewing area at far distances, and the cross hairs may seem out of center, with dark area to the bent side but should still work.
